  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87

    ($45) Good full red. Reduced aromas of black raspberry, cherry and herbs. Offers a silky, pliant texture, with moderately concentrated flavors of candied red fruits and herbs. The tannins are fairly light, but the finish is nonetheless a bit rough, with a touch of herbal dryness.

    This also exhibits buckets of Gevrey character with reserved, understated, moderately tannic flavors and a rustic, intense, sappy finish. This is no model of finesse but it packs plenty of flavor authority and mid-palate punch. Excellent quality here.

  • Michael Magnien wines offer the Burgundy enthusiast a great opportunity to experience the refined extraction and elegant concentration of Pinot Noir. Michel comes from a long line of Burgundy artisans and owns 27 acres of grand cru, premier cru and village vineyards. He sold off the majority of his crop until 1992, when he started bottling most of the harvest. In 1994, at the urging of his son Frederic, he decided to bottle the whole harvest and thus it remains to this day. He is a leader in terroir-driven Pinot and deals in purity. His wines are sleek yet commanding, and flood the senses with waves of berry and cherry in a sea of perfumed and exotic spices.

    Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
